The special Thanksgiving issue of RUBY magazine has just been published! In this issue you will find a treasure-trove of inspirational articles, short stories, devotionals, book reviews, puzzles, and recipes that celebrate the joy and beauty of the season of giving thanks. Be sure to check out “Quilting Prayers” by Lisa J. Radcliff, “Why I Wear a Cross” by Katherine Corrigan, and “Hymn Stories” by Lucy Neeley Adams where you can read the story behind one of the most beloved of Christian hymns, “Sweet Hour of Prayer” by William W. Walford.
In this issue of RUBY magazine you will be blessed by several Thanksgiving poems including, “Grandpa’s Mealtime Prayer” by Shirley Specht Johnson, “Give Thanks Through the Day” by Connie Arnold, and “Lift Up Your Eyes and Give God Praise” by Rejetta Morse. Just for Thanksgiving, we’ve included a collection of recipes that offer “A New Twist on Old Fashioned Thanksgiving Recipes from All Around the Blogosphere,” with links to recipes for Turkey Waldorf Salad from Simply Recipes, Cranberry Corn Casserole from Taste of Home, Frosty Pumpkin Squares and Green Bean Casserole Crescent Cups from Pillsbury.
“Coming Alongside as a Way of Life,” a book review by Michele Morin offers insight and encouragement from “Table Mentoring” by Sue Moore Donaldson that might be something you want to incorporate into your life in the New Year; the sweet story of “The Dress” by Susan Paulus tells of a family heirloom that has been passed down from generation to generation; and “Impacted by Faith” by Nancy Frantel offers a glimpse into the life of one women whose faith in God gave her the courage and strength to overcome the challenges of a traumatic brain injury resulting from a tragic automobile accident.
There are so many wonderful, inspiring articles and stories in the November issue of RUBY magazine! You don’t want to miss the “Vintage Book Treasure Hunt: The Courtship of Miles Standish” by Kathryn Ross; Paula McVay reminds us to remember all of God’s gifts and blessings in her article, “Don’t Forget,” and you will be truly blessed by the story of the power of prayer and reading God’s Word in the story by Shara Bueler-Repka, “Power of the Sword.”
And you really don’t want to miss part 2 of the short story by Donna B. Comeaux, “A Betrayal of Trust,” a story of friendship, trust, and forgiveness. You can read part 1 in the October issue of RUBY magazine, and be sure to follow up with part 3 in the December issue.
